Electric sliding doors and the very easy access from front to back of car as well as side to side - brilliant

.... My Head Up Display. It's invaluable for helping you keep within the speed limit as the current limit is shown in real time. Secondly the navigation directions, especially the roundabouts and upcoming lane changes are very clear. Having this data and other info like your speed and cruise control status projected at the windscreen in front of you saves taking your eyes off the road to look at the separate touchscreen.

In my opinion, this is one of the most useful bits of tech in keeping you focussed on the road. It also helps to counter:
  • All the nutters on the roads today including a high proportion that should of handed their driving licences back :roll:
  • Sunday drivers oblivious to other road users :argue:
  • Those that don't know what an indicator is used for :eh:
  • Idiots that think anyone already going round a roundabout must stop and give way to those joining it ](*,)
Just yesterday a woman drove right out in front of me without stopping at a junction - she never bothered looking right and had I been looking at the sat nav screen for the turn off instead of the road (we were looking for a medical facility) she would have ploughed straight into me. She didn't stop and even when she saw me, she carried on driving across me causing me to brake hard to avoid a collision.

Agree, HUD is great.

Best feature for me on our new C4 is the adaptive cruise, it’s amazing how the car speeds up and slows down and will apply the brakes to if required all based on the traffic flow. Using that and the steering assistance at the same time makes longer journeys feel shorter!

Currently in Northern Spain having driven over from Scotland and I can’t fault the EAT8 either, the first automatic car for me and also first petrol car in over 20 years. All these systems work well together and make a pleasurable drive. MPG is great to for the 1.2 130 - just did 1250miles and averaged 53mpg so far at 70+mph, only 3000 miles on the car so it may improve but happy with that.
